This is my tribute to one of the world's best writers!
Here is my interpretation as a poster of the horror
master HP Lovecraft. I feel really happy with this picture.
It went even better than what I expected.
Estimated time of this poster is approximately 12 hours.
I had some problems in the beginning how I would visualize this great master. But I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to do this picture very dark and crude, given that he is a horror novel's father.
I then decided me to visualize the image like an old photo taken around the early 1900's. But I also wanted to make it feel a little more like a painting and therefore decided to make the picture feel like it was painted with watercolor and ink. The results where really exciting.
After that I played around with creating my own texture and highlighted the picture went it to be even darker when I put the texture on. When this was done, I felt that I wanted to bring Lovecraft's works som more. I felt that it was not good enough with "The Old Ones" symbol only, and the book he's written in.
So I took a very appropriate quote from him self. Then did I put in as a typewriter. I know that he hated to write with a typewriter, so I felt maybe this font went even more appropriate given the text
Hope you enjoy the picture and if you're interested in learning more about my process, you can watch it on my blog below
And if you're keeping track, I will mention when the poster will come out to buy for all the Lovecraft fans out there
